AP Spot Challenge

There's a new challenge on the A Muse blog this week for A-Muse-A-Palooza. The challenge is to make a card inspired by the word "spot."

I thought of all sorts of ideas but landed on the Spot the dog children's book series, using Patch. Here's what I made:

Spot's First Walk


Spot's Birthday Party


Spot at the Farm


And one more card just for fun, inspired by inkspots:

I used Adirondack Alcohol inks, dripped and splattered them randomly. Also colored in the main image using the same inks from the bottles and a blender pen. This turned out totally 80's to me! I remember having a sweatshirt with ink splatters all over it! Heehee! (And, yes, I wore a high-up side pony tail with a scrunchie and big bangs!!) :D

All Stamps, Papers and Twinkle stickers used on these cards are by A Muse Artstamps (except for black and white basic CS).

I'm gonna be taking a break from blogging this month since I'll be on vacation but look forward to hopping back on in August! Hope you're all enjoying your Summer!!

Happy A-Muse-A-Palooza to you!!

Hugs!
